Let’s talk about hockey. NHL organizations all over North America have a variety of different strategies they use to identify player opportunity on a given team. Primarily, this breaks down into “numbers guys” and “eyes guys”. We’re talking about Analysts who pour over every stat of every player over the course of multiple seasons. We're also talking about the scouts and coaches who dedicate ungodly amounts of man hours to travel, watch and experience players first hand. Both groups of people represent the most passionate individuals in all of the executive NHL. The only problem is, that they both think that their method of thinking is the “correct” or “better” one.
